Karthikeya Movie Review


'Karthikeya' is based on the mysterious deaths surrounding Subramania Swamy temple in Subramaniapuram located at Andhra-Tamil Nadu Border. Karthikeya, who is a member of medical camp set up in this village, tries to chase the mystery despite being aware of all the hardships in the journey. Will he be able to accomplish the life-threatening mission successful? To know more, Reserve a seat in the nearby theatre that's been screening this suspense thriller.

Artists Performance:

Nikhil: From a College Student in 'Happy Days' to Medical Student in 'Karthikeya', We could notice a lot of maturity in this Youngster. For the first time ever, He tried to be subtle rather than being hyper and the makeover worked in his favor.

Colors Swathi: Saree-clad avatars have suited her to T. She does complete justice to the role of Nikhil's support system and shares a nice onscreen chemistry with the protagonist.

Raavu Ramesh as Endowments Commissioner and Tanikella Bharani (Swathi's Dad) are top class. Praveen evokes few laughs. Rest of the casting have been decent.

Plus Points:

- Dialogues

- Music

- Cinematography

- First Half

- Run Time (2 hr 4 min)

Minus Points:

- Second Half

- Climax


'Karthikeya' touches the concept 'God Vs Science'. Chandoo Mondeti does a commendable job as director and it doesn't look like his debut flick. The film has got a good premise and set up, most importantly it has been executed in a appealing manner. Thrillers work only when suspense element was maintained till the very end. 'Karthikeya' scores in this aspect (even though Second Half & Climax could have been better) to hit the bull's eye.

Sekhar Chandra's songs were too good. 'Swathi Chinukai' and 'Intalo' are the best picks in the album. Even the picturization is appreciable. Background Score is in perfect sync with the theme of the movie. Cinematography by Karthik is top notch. Dialogues which have a lot of depth are the biggest strength of this thriller. 'Konni Abaddalu Alochinchakunda Nammutham, Konni Nijalu Nammadaniki Alochistam' and 'Prapanchamlo Prathi Prasnaki Samadhanam Untundhi, Samadanam Lekapothe Samasya Prasnadhi Kadu Prayathnanidi' are some of the best one-liners. Editing is crisp. Art Direction is praise worthy. Production Values are rich.

At Box Office, 'Karthikeya' is undoubtedly the biggest ever release for Nikhil. Especially, Multiplexes have shown a lot of faith in this thriller and offered good number of screens. This film has got the potential to become Nikhil's highest grosser.

Verdict: An Engaging Thriller!
